AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Set in a migrant camp during the years following World War II, a period when some four thousand Polish families came to Australia, the narrative focuses on Julian. Although married to Anna and with a son, he falls in love with Nina and she with him. As they and others face the new situations and prejudices that await immigrants and as they take on aspects of Australian culture, old-country values reassert themselves. Julian is eventually forced to make a decision between love and family.
